HOW TO EXIT FROM THE FINANCIAL RAT RACE?

Wealth Creation

Many of us are employees with the main source of income being our employment income. This income is needed to support our living and it is the savings from our income, that is the portion of our incomes minus away all the expenditures which we could put together and decide what to do away with it.

Most of us save what we have left minus all the expenses and experts always advised us that savings are subject to the effect of inflation such that the monies we have left in banks (which earn very little interest rate) are not so much after some time due to inflation. We are always encouraged to invest but some choose the wrong investments, lose capital and end up worse that what he or she could be if he had just saved and not dabbled in investments.Read more »

THREE WAYS TO SUSTAIN WEALTH

Wealth creation

I have been working hard at work and I am still considered a good employee, a good worker though I might not be the most perfect. These days, I have been grappling hard with a heavy workload and this workload would be increasing in breadth and depth over time. Hence I would be spending more time at work understanding more about the company’s business more in-depth. Being a man who is from an analytical background, I have not much of a problem in understanding and doing things revolved around KPIs, timelines (this sounds like a portion of a CV to be given to a potential employer), that is anything systematic; but the more difficult parts of a job is to deal with human issues, politics, and so on and so forth.

OSIM STOCK & V3 STOCK

Osim stock

Osim stock, which was delisted from Singapore Stocks Exchange would be seeking a listing on the Hong Kong stocks markets as V3 stock. This is of interest to me since when Osim was delisted from Singapore stocks markets, I have thought that Osim would be kept as a private entity. I understand that proceeds from the V3 IPO would be used to repay a loan of $321.9 million obtained by Osim as well as for the acquisition in Futuristic, a Singapore-based store fixtures manufacturer, of a 69% stake.

TRUMP EFFECT on GLOBAL STOCKS

Trump, Stocks

I was like the world eager to know how the first meeting of US President Donald Trump with the Chinese President Xi Jin Ping would be like yesterday but the meeting was eclipsed by the sudden US strike on Syrian government targets. As we know, the strike was a response to the attack on civilians in Syria. The strikes definitely have an effect on the global stocks markets, not less than how the stocks markets make sense of the meeting between the two Presidents. The effect is on a longer-term basis as I believe many see the US response on Syria as a barometer of the extent to how US would engage North Korea. Also, there are some geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea from time to time.

Are these SMALL-CAP PLAYS still in PLAY?

Small cap stocks

I watched the “Moneyweek” episode of Channel 8 on 5 Apr 2017. The episode featured the business growth story of Myanmar and shared how Singapore businesses fare in Myanmar in their business development there as well as the businessmen’s sentiments of doing business there. This episode was a very good take-away to me of the updates of the Myanmar growth story in a half-hour documentary.

Of GOLD and a US stock I love

I am sharing the video below as it contains some good analysis of gold. Recall some investors are interested in gold as some people come to doubt whether the stocks markets will still benefit from the “Trump Effect”. Then there is another US stock called Nvidia stock, a technology stock which I am quite enamored of, but which I have not really come into investing in the stock. Enjoy the video below. Read more »

UnUsUaL IPO

UNUSUAL STOCK IPO

UnUsUalL IPO will be the next Singapore IPO for retail and institutional investors. MM2 Asia announced on 4 April 2017 that it would launch the IPO shares of its unit UnUsUaL. Some 97 million shares at $0.20 per share would be placed.

I believe UnUsUaL IPO will be the next keen IPO for Singapore retail investors right after Kimly IPO. This is because of the success of MM2 as a stock which has seen quite a good capital appreciation performance. Investors will likely deem that there is similar potential of capital appreciation if they own the stock of a unit of MM2 Asia.

TOM K’s GRAND SINGAPORE STOCK INVESTMENT REVEALED

SINGAPORE STOCKS

Yesterday, when I shared with readers that I would be going in to the Singapore stocks markets to make one grand investment for the year in a small-cap stock (you can read the post here if you have not), little did I know my investment in the league of a five-figure sum will shake up the small-cap stock in the local stocks markets. Right after my investment first thing in the morning of 5 Apr 2017, a large volume of buyers flocked in and the buying continued such that the stock made the top 20 volume as well as the one of the top gainer stocks in the stocks markets for 5 Apr 2017. You could have deduce what stock I bought from the aforementioned description alone. Read more »

ITS STOCKS AGM TIME


AGMs

I have been receiving a number of annual reports of listed companies whose stocks I own in my mailbox. With the trend of digitalization, most of these reports are now given to me in CD format neatly placed in a hardcover. I have to say that I still like hard copies of annual reports as it makes for easier reads and the tactile touch of reading, perusing or even sniffing at the “crispy” reports seems to remind me of the tie that I have with the listed company, in the sense that I am a shareholder of the company. For CD-ROM versions of the annual reports, although it is environmentally-friendly, I never get pass to the stage of inserting the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM tray and reading it, probably as accessing the same softcopy annual report on the listed company’s website is probably much faster.
